Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Gloucestershire

We are due to move house in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Gloucestershire. Conveyancing firm was chosen prior to coming across your site.

On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from the estate agent but this should only take place once the sellers conveyancers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you can advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Gloucestershire or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Gloucestershire.

We had instructed solicitors locally in Gloucestershire on the Santander solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional amount for the legal aspects of the Santander mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Santander?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your solicitor can charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by Santander but by your Gloucestershire property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Santander panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

Coventry BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a house in Gloucestershire has been agreed to, now what?

The property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (make sure the property lawyers are on the lender’s panel). Contact Coventry BS or your broker and finish off any appropriate documentation. Coventry BS will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or vendor to schedule a time for the valuation to happen. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Coventry BS will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Gloucestershire.

I am buying a new build apartment in Gloucestershire. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Gloucestershire

    Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

My husband and I are 3 weeks into a residential purchase having been directed to a firm by the estate agent to carry out the conveyancing in Gloucestershire. We are not happy. Could you help me find new solicitors?

A conveyancer would need to be really poor to suggest replacing them. Has the loan offer been generated? In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the replacement lawyer and ensure the mortgage documents are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally should be on the banks approved list to avoid escalating costs and complications. So that should be your starting point. The find a solicitor tool can assist you in finding a bank approved solicitor for your conveyancing in Gloucestershire

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Gloucestershire. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently had a half-yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the service charge as normal because all rents and maintenance invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I purchased a studio flat in Gloucestershire, conveyancing was carried out February 2004. How much will my lease extension cost? Comparable flats in Gloucestershire with a long lease are worth £175,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2077

With only 58 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £23,800 and £27,400 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
